TVNZ and NZ On Air are delighted to announce that TV ONE’s record breaking series, Nothing Trivial will return for a second season.
The series started with a bang – it was the highest rating debut of a local drama for this millennium.
516,300 New Zealanders tuned in for the first episode and the show has since held a loyal following of fans. As well as this week being the most viewed programme on TVNZ OnDemand, Nothing Trivial has sustained its television ratings success.
The decision from NZ On Air to fund another season of the hit drama is welcomed by Jeff Latch, Head of TV ONE and TV2. “Nothing Trivial has great writers, a fantastic cast and it allows New Zealanders to see their stories on screen. This has been a winning combination with viewers returning week after week. New Zealanders can’t get enough of Nothing Trivial.”
NZ On Air Chief Executive, Jane Wrightson, says the funding agency is delighted to support a second series. “TV ONE has provided a great home for local drama this year with the first series of Nothing Trivial launching well and more recently the local Sunday Theatre season being received so positively. We look forward to the second season of Nothing Trivial continuing this strong performance next year” she says.
Head of Commissioning, Andrew Shaw, is also pleased with the decision. “The talented team at South Pacific Pictures has successfully brought endearing home-grown characters to life. TVNZ is proud to be associated with Nothing Trivial.”
